economics adviser as well as secretary under clinton spoke with cnbc's bernie lowe just today. >> everybody should, before meeting the debt obligations of the united states, and then there needs to be a vigorous and active discussion around what is a very real problem. the sustainability over the long-term of the u.s. financial position, which surely needs be addressed in a balanced way with both measures on the expenditure side and measures on the revenue side. >> phillip, how are you? >> i'm fairly cynical about the whole process. >> about u.s. politics? >> well, the other side, as well. i think you can make a pretty good case for abolishing the debt ceiling completely. that's not go to happen in the short-term. we've seen this time and time again. we know that these negotiations are being conducted across polarized camps in congress and the administration and that the likely event is that nothing is going to be agreed at until the 11th hour, right at the last minute spop i would have thought it's very likely that we'll get an increase in the debt ceiling at some stage. likewise, there wi
by executive order to decide he can go beyond the constitution. >> reporter: remember as well when bill clinton was in the white house in the early '90s he pushed some gun control legislation there was a massive political backlash against democratic members of congress who voted for that in the 1994 midterm elections. what the white house believes may be different this time, not just newtown, but this whole series of tragedies like tucson, aurora, colorado, and newtown having some children killed, they think the political dynamic has changed. we shall see, jenna. jenna: we will see if it sets the tone for the second term of the president which is about to officially begin. back to the white house as news develops. thanks very much. jon: before bringing his proposals to the president the vice president met with representativesing from the entertainment and videogame industry and other lawmakers attacked hollywood over increasing violence portrayed. so what will the president do? will there be any pushes for changes in the videogame and entertainment industries? chief washington correspondent jam
. the welfare reform program work. the greatest decrease in child poverty in america came under bill clinton with a republican congress in the late 1990's. that is just a fact. jeffrey is shaking his head. no, it is a fact. the lowest level of black children in poverty in history was 1997. you could make an argument that having a welfare system shift toward opportunity would work. >> i'm going to give you all the time you need. before that, what would you say then to those who read the "new york times" stories when they did to review 15 years after bill clinton's welfare to work program, that women and children were falling faster into poverty than anybody else? [applause] i too was the program that helped push them in there? were they wrong? -- it was that program that helped push them in there? were they wrong? >> yes, but let me carry you two steps further. i have been working with a former california assembly leader on a project state-by- state to get people out of prison if they are there for non-violent crimes, to get them brought back into society. you cannot discuss how we will solve
, the waiting ends. >> while president clinton was successful in getting an assault weapons ban passed in 1994, clinton recalled how democratic leaders feared the ban would cost them control of congress, writing in his book, if we made them walk the plank, many democrats who voted for it would not survive the election in noe november. democrats' fears were realized that year. this time democrats said they'll proceed carefully. >> we're going to try to get something passed in the house. i'm not going through these gyrations just to say we've done something. >> they're not looking for new laws out of washington, they're looking for more involvement in their communities and families at the state level. >> two democratic leaders are going beyond what president obama is likely to propose. government mark o'malley says he'll push for tighter gun laws in his state. and in new york, governor cuomo signed a sweeping gun bill into law on tuesday that was blasted, saying it will have no impact on public safety and crime. >> besides those new laws he wants congress to pass, he will announce some executive

[applause] ok? now that is a very difficult challenge for both parties. one last example
not mean we can't do it. i was around for the battle during the clinton years. i was not a member of congress. i was a victim sitting in the audience as many of the others were there. but with the vice president and certainly president obama with their strength of the office and going around the country and talking to americans which basically agree with the president, it's going to be up to the people across the country to talk to their members of congress to make sure that we and get this done. this can save lives. we've saw that. when the large magazine clips, which i've been reintroducing ever since 204, when that ban was in place, we did not see these magazines out on the streets. and they were very expensive because they were rare. we can do that again to cut that down. we're not going to be taking away anyone's right to own a gun. the supreme court already did that. but with the president laying out what he did, in a very holistic way, by the way, by working with our schools, making sure we have community policing, have psychologists. it's going to be up to the schools to m
part. lyndon johnson did, bill clinton did. he doesn't. >> so even though the kids are going to be out of the house, so to speak, you don't expect him to change? >> i think it would being a great. designee just made a joke the kids are moving out, come on over. >> it's >>> the cars of tomorrow, they're on display today at the detroit auto show. we'll show you the cars and the truck that give you the best bang for your buck. >>> and take look at the groundbreaking new corvette stingray. all right. pretty. you're watching "cbs this morning." t he do it with >> announcer: this morning's eye opener at 8:00 is brought to you by sponsor with an inside story on shingles. democrats? e >>> planning for your retirement is more important than ever, so why are more people raiding their 401(k)s to pay their bills?

bush with clinton. he was impeached. yesterday we had the first member of congress to stand up and utter a threat of impeachment against president obama. steve stockman, republican of texas, over the gun issue, said, i will file an impeachment resolution against him. so it really is much the same. there's an oppositional, almost insurgent republican party and democrats who have been sometimes naive about what the opposition really feels, what they're really ready to do, especially the sort of core, hard-core wing of the republican party. >> hey, peter, robert gibbs was just on with us, and it's something you just mentioned. the level of exhaustion within the white house, of the people re-interviewed, that you went back to this year, four years later, how many of them mentioned the exhaustion factors as a component part of what happens to them? >> oh, sure, all of them, basically, i think, suffered it from some way or another. melody barnes, you just had on your program, talked about sleeping with her blackberry and waking up with a start at 3:00 in the morning, suddenly, you kn
to try to bring the country together in terms of unity? i mean that's certainly not what bill clinton did. >> well, it is in the following sense. i think that the divisiveness you're talking about has a lot more to do with the kind of arguments that chuck was referencing, and those are obviously going to be problematic going forward. but if you actually look at poll after poll you find that the vast majority of americans are actually very sympathetic to gay rights, to equal pay, to, you know, anti-discrimination. even to gun control. so, i think the kind of unity that he was talking about yesterday was actually, again, very resonant. you didn't hear him talk, and interestingly he talked more about this in his first inaugural speech, about unity with republicans. unity with people who oppose him. i think here he's reached his hand out many times to have it slapped away. now we are going to have to figure out a way to move forward, just as chuck says. and actually there are a few sort of semipositive signs on that front lately. there's been a couple of arguments that have been resolved -- >
